Logical Factory: Virtualizing Manufacturing for AgilityInterested in the Catalyst Program?
This Catalyst will show the development of a platform underpinned by Industry 4.0 philosophies which integrates and connects digitally numerous manufacturing systems across disparate facilities.
- The project will leverage platform based thinking, architectures and methodologies as well as Forum Open APIs for interoperability across disparate facilities and different processes proving quantifiable value in a real world context.
- Building upon industry agreed standards and security protocols enabling a scalable platform, improving interoperability, efficiency and transparency
Previous phases of this Catalyst, 2016
In 2016, this Catalyst project outlined plans for end-to-end operability from factory-floor automation equipment to cloud systems completely connected through TM Forum’s REST open digital APIs. This showed dynamic interoperability pushing dynamic APIs also being developed within the TM Forum Collaboration program. Supporting article here.
